My Birthday in the TALLEST Building in London!

in #travel5 years ago (edited)


I want to share my experience celebrating my Birthday 2 years ago in the tallest building in London (4th tallest in Europe). The building's name is The Shard. The Shard (also referred to as the Shard of Glass) is a 95-storey skyscraper. The Shard has various cool restaurants and for my birthday I decided to go with Chinese cuisine, so I chose the Hutong restaurant, which is located high up on the 33rd floor.

This is how The Shard looks like…

The construction started on March 2009, and it was completed by July 2012.

I chose Hutong mostly because of the décor and the view.

..and this is me starting the celebration with my family.


Our food…


Food was good, but to be honest I tried better Chinese cuisine. But I would still come back!

Me with my aunt taking pictures with the London view from Hutong restaurant.


And later, we took a drive around London and went to another place..

I did not know that it is legal to drink in the car! It is illegal in USA. It was a very fun experience!

You are asking about drinking in the car, in my country it is not allowed anywhere lol. It is banned here.

Beautiful birthday, i think. and in January I visited another skyscraper in my list-the Lotte tower in Seoul, but, true, because of the fact that I was unwell, I did not attend any restaurants thereIMG_20180103_141148_AO_HDR.jpg

We had a fantastic meal in the Shard too. We were fortunate enough to get a table at the window. It was a Christmas present and a huge treat! What a fantastic experience. Not quite such a glamorous evening as yours though by the luck of it. Glad you had a good time too!

heeey, thanks for the idea :O

Looks like you had a lot of fun! View is amazing!
